Taking the cable car to mountain Karren in Dornbirn Vorarlberg

Mountain Karren in Dornbirn in the Austrian region of Vorarlberg is known for its nice panoramic views and hiking trails. You can’t drive up there by car, you can only use the cable car which runs frequently throughout the day. The day I visited Dornbirn to have Lunch at Karren Panorama Restaurant, was one of the worst of the week (probably even of the month ?). In the morning the sun was out, but then, very quickly, the weather changed. First, we were greeted by rain, followed by not that soft winds later on. Before I went up the cart cableway there was only some rain, so everything seemed fine. The cable-car runs every 15 minutes, summer and winter, and only takes less than 5 minutes to go all the way up to 976 meters above sea level. Return Tickets cost 11.10€ per adult and 5,50€ per Kid, but there are also Combi-Tickets available, including either a breakfast buffet on the weekend or a Lunch for 17€ per Person in the Restaurant. The Karren Panorama Restaurant is the only Restaurant up there, and they don’t even have a little shop or something, so you should definitely bring your own snacks and drinks if you want to go hiking. Instead, they offer free WiFi.

Once you bought your ticket, you have to scan it to proceed to the entrance of the cable-car. Starting from 9 am in summer and 10 am in the winter season, the cars run every 15 minutes. For exact dates, you should check out their website, as linked below.
On usual days, you will be greeted with a stunning view of the Rhinedelta with Lake Constance, Vorarlberg, as well as parts of Switzerland and Germany. Karren is not the only mountain that can be accessed via a cable-car, there are also others like Pfänder (you can either hike, take the cable-car or your own car) which is closer to Lake Constance.
